Smart Remote
Smart Remote: Control Your Home Electronics with Your Phone
l
The Smart Remote can be used with home electronics that have accompanying infrared
remotes. It does not work with devices that use Bluetooth or other non-infrared remote
controls.
l
There is no unified industry standard for infrared codes. This means the Smart Remote may not
be able to control some home electronics.
l
Turn your phone into a universal remote control: Add your home electronics to the Smart
Remote and you won't have to worry about misplacing remotes any more. The remote control
buttons can be customized to fit your own preferences so the remote is easier to use.
l
Use your phone as a remote control for your camera: Take better group photos by using your
phone as a remote control for your camera. Smart Remote helps you to get the best shot and
capture natural expressions when taking photos.

Utilities
Use Smart Remote to Control Your Home Electronics
Use Smart Remote to add, customize, and set up remote controls, allowing effortless control of your
electronic appliances through your phone.
l
For aesthetic reasons, the infrared sensor of your phone is embedded within the device. This
means that the angle of effectiveness is smaller than most remote controls at around 0 to 15°.
When attempting to remotely control a device, ensure that the infrared transmitter at the top
of your phone is directly facing the appliance.
l
To avoid excess power consumption, the power output of your phone's infrared transmitter is
lower than in most remote controls, with an effective range of no greater than 7 meters.
Customize a remote control: Open
Smart Remote, go to
> Customize, select the
controller template, and touch the gray button to learn the controller function. While learning, keep
your phone and remote control still and within 5 cm from each other. Keep the button held for more
than 2 seconds.
Air-conditioner remote controls do not support customization.
Set up a remote control: Open
Smart Remote, touch Settings, and enable or disable the key
sounds and vibration.
When you want to take group photos, don't worry about having to use a camera remote control or
timer. Use Smart Remote on your phone to capture special moments with ease.

Enhanced Data Protection: Defend Your Privacy
Worried that your photos, bank account information, or other private data might get leaked if your
phone is lost or stolen? Huawei phones now feature security chips in addition to the combined
protection provided by the trusted root key and lock screen password. Whether your data is stored in
a microSD card or internal storage, it will receive the highest level of protection.
Stronger encryption and safeguards: Huawei phones use a hardware key that cannot be used to
decrypt data when separated from the phone. Based on the trusted root key, the encrypted
components are incorporated into the memory control chip to enhance the data protection capability
of the hardware. This works together with your lock screen password to protect your private data.
When you use PrivateSpace, Multi-user, encrypted microSD files, or other features to encrypt photos,
personal information, or other personal data, the only way your data can possibly be decrypted is if
the trusted root key, lock screen password, and security chip are simultaneously cracked.Not all
devices support microSD cards.

System Update
Performing an Online Update
Your phone will prompt you to download and install a system update when a new version is available.
The online update feature allows you to update your phone quickly and securely.

avoid incurring unnecessary data charges.
l
Ensure that your phone is at least 30% charged during the update process.
l

Huawei service center.

Always back up your data before updating your phone to avoid potential data loss.
